At the annual Christmas Lunch at DTU Science Park December 2022, ZenzeTech was granted a 100.000 DKK prize from Sportsgoodfonden for being one of three of the most promising startups with a scalable product and big potential to create an impact on people worldwide.  

The annual Christmas lunch at DTU Science Park for CEOs provides a welcome break from the busy daily work, allowing attendees to engage in pleasant conversations with like-minded people while enjoying delicious Christmas food and interesting talks. This year, the talks were given by DTU Science Park CEO Steen Donner, Dansk Industri CEO Lars Sandahl Sørensen, and Sportsgoodsfonden Chairman Steen Lassen, who discussed internationalization, global supply chains, and Danish entrepreneurship with great enthusiasm. 


Three startups receive a grant of 100.000 DKK each for their great potential 

As the attendees digested the interesting topics of globalization and enjoyed the great food, it was time to announce the three recipients of 100,000 DKK. Steen Donner opened the session by saying, “At DTU Science Park, we have some of the brightest and most ambitious deep-tech startups who work every day to bring new technology to the world for the benefit of as many people as possible.” 


Next, Steen Lassen talked about the history of Sportsgoodfonden and announced the winners, handing over the prizes with the words, “It is a pleasure for Sportsgoodfonden to award grants to three startups from DTU Science Park that have distinguished themselves by


developing useful technologies that improve people’s lives and benefit society.” 

ZenzeTech was one of the three winners, praised for having a novel technology that can benefit not only people with Parkinson’s disease but also those with other neurological diseases. The other two winners were GO-Pen, a co-participant in Danish Tech Challenge 2020, and Eye-GO, a MedTech startup. 


With the grant ZenzeTech can realise their vision and bring value to patients faster 

As a startup, you are always looking for funding, and it remains one of the major challenges for startups. Therefore, the co-founder and CEO of ZenzeTech was very happy to give a one-minute pitch and receive the grant, saying, “We are so grateful and humble. It’s a big pat on the back for us to be recipients of the grant, along with two other great startups. With the money, we can realize our vision and make a difference for people faster.” Christian added that being part of a community like DTU Science Park is vital for the success of ZenzeTech, saying, “Being part of the community in DTU Science Park has been a game-changer for us, with the mentoring program and other startups to learn from. Specifically, the mentoring program has been instrumental in our success, and we wouldn’t be here without our first mentor team. Now we have a new team helping us to create the foundation for scaling.”
